White Heather Hotel is a great place to stay in a wonderful location overlooking the harbour and Castle Moil. This was our first visit to Skye and Gillian and Craig made us very welcome as well as our dog Ted. I think they were hoping we would leave him behind. Gillian has a wealth of knowledge with regard to where...

Small hotel but very comfortable. Good breakfast and although they do not serve evening meals, Gillian will reserve a table for you at any of the good local restaurants and call the local taxi to get you there and back. Great views from the hotel front and easy parking at the hotel. Would stay again if travelling through the area.

The White Heather Hotel is wonderful. The Hosts are just wonderful people. They do everything they can to make your stay comfortable. I will never forget the beautiful scenery that greeted me every morning. We traveled from Scotland to London and Paris and this was by far the warmest and nicest hotel we stayed in. The breakfast was wonderful and...

Just to add that the hotel's cottage, Apple Blossom, is at the other of Skye, near Dunvegan. I'm adding this review here as it doesn't seem to have it's own entry but is well worth thinking about if you're heading that way. You call into the White Heather Hotel to collect and drop off the key, and can see the...

This hotel is set on a lovely bay at Kyleakin with wonderful views of the bay and Castle Moil. Lots of extras included here, including a Kitchenette with frig, microwave and washer/dryer - (a heads up to Americans - this washer/dryer does not work like the machines in America - it only takes very small loads, and our clothes never...

Stayed here for 3 nights - the welcome was warm and Gillian is absolutely charming. Everything you could wish for has been provided and if it hasn't - then just ask and it will be, nothing is a trouble. I could go on and on about the White Heather but I won't - suffice to say read the reviews and...

My family very much enjoyed our 3-night stay here and highly recommend this hotel. Instead of the family room, Gillian offered us a special rate on 2 rooms, which gave us more space and privacy. Gillian was the perfect hostess, helpful and cordial in every way, making dinner and boat reservations for us and suggesting good car routes and walks,...

We arrived in Skye and upon arriving at the White Heather Hotel we were met by a warm and very friendly welcome by Gillian and Craig. The hotel is easy to find, good car parking and with stunning views of the harbour and surrounding area. Some of the touches the hotel has made a big difference to our stay. 2...

It would be hard to better this b & b. The location is great - right on the harbour, the breakfasts were superb and Gillian and Craig were wonderful hosts. The rooms were really comfortable and a lot of thought had gone into what guests might need. Recommend this place to anyone.
